A Successful switch to Merayo

Cirencester is well known as one of the premier locations in The Cotswolds. It offers a mix of town life, boutique shops and restaurants all within this stunning surrounding countryside (this also includes the Cotswold Water Park).

We were delighted that our Merayo Spanish Roofing Slate were chosen for use on this development of six 5 bedroom luxury detached homes, which sit within a small private tree lined development and offer a standard well above the ‘norm’. 

Ashford homes of Bradford On Avon in Wiltshire have been crafting beautiful homes in the South West for 30 years, synonymous with quality they are dedicated to building unique and modern developments, using design and technology to deliver life convenience and enjoyment. Rather than mass producing, they focus on building smaller, individual developments crafted to a higher standard. They are devoted to the quality of craftsmanship, striving to set exceptional standards in specification and finishes.

Sharland Roofing Limited from Swindon in Wiltshire were awarded the contract to fix the slates and were instrumental in Merayo being selected, initially a different product had been chosen but Sharlands have been using Merayo on all of their projects for many years. We spoke to Lee Timms, Estimating Manager for Sharlands who said ‘Our slaters love using Merayo because it’s flat and easy to work with, minimal grading and sorting is required and wastage is low.  We have a long track record with Merayo and it’s a slate we know we can trust, so we asked Ashford Homes to consider changing, which they were happy to do after seeing samples’.
